differently that he didn't do, which was by having them do nothing about the military. clinton and obama and the younger bush. these four individuals made these contributions, it is no surprise that they were in the terrible situation that we find ourselves in now that has to be corrected. when we look at the george herbert walker bush administration, he had three important people at the defense department. it was based on just a tailored pattern of total deception and outright lies. they have put together a secret paper. instead of taking together a strategic opportunity the collapse of the soviet union in 1991, all of those things we didn't expect to see in a lifetime. i certainly didn't expect to see this a couple of us wrote about the problems and no one expected it to collapse like a house of cards. this opportunity you was totally not taken. it was not taken by the bush administration. there were things like the invasion of panama and one individual had been on the cia payroll for most of the time and that is a heck of a precedence to set the terms of the military. it speaks as a m
to the clinton library? >> i was going to ask you how they dealt with all the problems he had with impeachment and if they had been fair. >> i was told that he was really impressed with the watergate exhibit. i was told that would inspire him to do some -- to make some changes to the museum. one of the things that allen weinstein was hoping was that the nixon library to be a new start. some of the libraries are much too much like shrines. this is public money. you don't get to take off on your tax return with your money goes to a public entity or a public library. it goes to every library. >> george w. bush's library opened in the early part of 2013. how much of the building was paid for by the federal government? >> the building is pay full -- is before by his private foundation. the deal is that they build the building and they have to meet national archives specifications, federal government specification. >> only certain amount of feet? >> i would like to be a debate. i think americans up to decide what they want occurred but i don't think they know they have a choice. right now, congress
the president did, and when secretary clinton said she had a clear idea of the threats faced in libya, the secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs said they knew that night it was a terrorist attack and knew of the reporting coming out of libya, from ambassador stevens, who said we cannot defend the consulate. she was not clear-eyed, she was blind and deaf and the president of the united states never picked up the phone to call anybody in libya to help these poor people under attack. the first ambassador killed in 30 years. withheld information. i think manipulated the evidence after the attack to create a political narrative rather than sharing with the public the truth about an al-qaeda attack that was pre-planned, pre-coordinated. we'll get to the bottom of this. >> chris: let me just ask you one more question about the sequestration before we let you go, senator. you know if we go into the sequester the president is going to hammer republicans, the white house already put out a list of all the things, terrible things that will happen if a sequester kicks in, sing hea
who would later ron go to work for secretary clinton to go and start thinking about did we want to even help people to use social media to democratize. so he created groups of friends, for instance people who would help overthrow terrorism and columbia who could chat with people in the middle east who were trying to deal with terrorism, as a week starting to use the social media. but i am trying to understand now read is an accelerant, it isn't the cause of the trend but it is an accelerant to read what is interesting is what is happening in the social media in china because the regime is doing everything it can to control the internet. it's terrified of the internet and in fact packing into the servers to try to find that last human rights advocate and the social media is going wild in china and the regime isn't so certain that maybe it's not a bad thing that people have a way to vent through social media so you remember the story of the girl that was run over in the streets, that exploded into the social media in china but i would say to the regime it's one thing people will j
everybody into believing i care about you. he remind me about clinton said about him being the most ethical president in american history. >> sean: penny, where is the shared sacrifice and we have to make unpopular choices and some austerity. he had a vacation a month ago. i worked most of my vacation over christmas. where is the sacrifice? >> and he's agreed to sacrifices and agreed to almost 2 trillion dollars worth of cuts. i know you're going to criticize it and he's agreed to that. >> sean: i'm talking about him. explain to me. people-- people need jobs, 50 million americans are on food stamps. >> and the last 30 months. >> sean: and he's hanging out thousand dollar an hour golf lessons, 180,000 plane trips, his wife goes on vacation there, and he goes there. and she goes to nantucket and he goes later. >> are you going to criticize the president for vacations. george w. bush the most vacationing president in history. >> sean: he went to his ranch, and stayed at his ranch. >> that's a vacation at taxpayer expense. if you want to criticize you have to-- >> the rounds of golf, you don't

. each of us on either side of president clinton as he announced the once unthinkable normalization of our relations with vietnam, and efforts that john mccain and i worked on for about 10 years to try do. in the last decade, thanks in large part to the work of usaid, our exports to vietnam increased by more than 700%. every one of those percentage points our jobs here in america. in the last two decades, 1000 vietnamese students and scholars have studied spanish and taught -- have studied and taught in america through the fulbright program, including the foreign minister, who i just talked to the other day and who has feelings about america because of that engagement. the list goes on. as the emerging middle class in india, the world's largest democracy, buys our products, that means jobs and incomes for our own middle-class. as our traditional assistance to brazil and decreases, trade there is increasing. brazil is one of the new tigers moving at a double-digit pace. it supports additional jobs here at home, many in the u.s. travel and tourism industry. when jefferson expanded our
on the history, but when i was offered this job i secretary clinton, the prior offense -- office had lost the confidence of key officials in the u.s. government. i thought it was a chance to start over, and i think that probably a lot of what we are doing was in the original conception. i am trying not to throw out the baby with the bathwater. nobody has said that since their grandmother died, right? i do not know why that phrase came up. my feeling is that i think the original intent was to be strategic and have a policy influence, and then when it went through its middle stages as a coordinator, it never gained traction in the state department. it then went into a supplier of people, which i thought was too limited. so, we have tried to recapture that we want to be part of the policy conversation. we have been very fortunate to have the dynamic support of secretary clinton for the first year of our existence. now, what we are finding is in the handful of meetings i have had with secretary kerry, is he has said give me ideas and we have to find a different way of doing some of these thin
to anything like that but it is was remarkable that he was one of the 4,000 a day according to the clinton justice department that do use a firearm in self-defense. obviously, he is pretty happy he was able to do so. >> next call comes from alabama. caller: good morning, sir. i'm a first time caller. appreciate c-span. my comments or issues are is that the majority of these people are talking about second amendment rights. they have to realize that the second amendment was written years and years ago. things do get amended. the people who we put there to control these laws, they are being controlled by lobbyists, the n.r.a. ena other groups also. let's see if we can contribute to these congressman and other people, who is going to protect us instead of doing what they want to do. guest: well, i think the caller is making an argument that is frequently made by people who have questions about the second amendment. yeah, the second amendment was written in the 18th century. so was the first amendment. yes, many years have gone by and firearms have developmented, technology has changed but we
they didn't support the surge in iraq, get after hillary clinton. she voted against the surge. get after barack obama, he voted against the surge. get after the entire joint chiefs of staff at the time. they were all against the surge. and you can make the case that the surge worked in a tactical way. it still hasn't worked in its ultimate, strategic objectives for reasons that i discussed, and in the meantime, it did cost a lot of money and probably, you know, a thousand extra american soldiers died in the implementation of that surge compared with if you just pulled them out. was that worth it? i don't know. i don't know. we don't know yet. but it's not, it is not a clear-cut fact that the surge worked and we won and that sort of thing. as for the jewish lobby question, i mean, you know, let's get real. the israeli press, i mean, i'm jewish. the israeli press refers to aipac as the jewish lobby. okay, it's a little -- and, you know, aipac has had this thing going for years where anybody who criticizes israel, they say, oh, well, you're anti-semitic. you're really talking about jews, yo
. about 1998. president clinton launched tomahawk missiles based on the embassies blown up in a staffer cut and launched tomahawks into this again and in east afghanistan. they hit targets. if you asked any of us in the room the next morning whether america was at work, i trust all of us would've said no. we fired some tomahawk missiles, but we are not at war. if you ask people in it the impact of this tomahawk missiles, they have a different view. so the danger it can potentially lower willingness to use force and not conservatives were and yet you build up enemies. keep other people who think they are at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with the united states? the average answer is 9/11. al qaeda declared war against the united states in 1996. most of us didn't get the memo. but they attacked the cole, attacked east africa. the report says. as a danger when one side is how bored any other is an outworn both ways. the danger about this technology is that. anytime you can sit back and safety and do something for somebody else, you don't necessarily feel now. if your son or daug
clinton. these are not ideological primers and these -- >> takes longer to heal. >> takes longer to heal. and whether it's the club for growth or whether it's carl's group -- >> i agree with robert on that. these nominees will be chosen on the ground. all right. sara taylor fagen, robert gibbs, thank you both. up next, president obama tees up with tiger. rand paul on whether he's ready to run. and while jessie jackson's troubles grow, the list. candidates to replace him is shrinking. and then there's a big name new yorker set to spend millions miles from home. but in honor of president's day, washington and lincoln are the most common presidential names for places in the united states. which president's name comes in at number three. so washington, lincoln, think lincoln county, all that business. which presidential surname is number three. person to tweet the correct answer gets an on-air shout-out. coming up. we'll be right back. [ fishing rod casting line, marching band playing ] [ male announcer ] the rhythm of life. [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy
to understand creates a lot of resentment on people. president clinton in 1998 launched tomahawk missiles based on the embassies that were blown up in east africa. and they hit targets, and if you had asked any of us in this room the next morning whether america was at war, i trust that all this would've said no. we fired some missiles, but we are not at war. if you would ask people near the impact, they would have a different view. so the danger is that could potentially lower the willingness to use force and not think of it as war. and yet you build up enemies and people that think they are at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with the united states? the average answer is 9/11. but they declared war with us in 1996. most of us did not get the memo. they attacked and they were at war with us. there is always danger in both ways. the danger of all the technology is that tiger has the same potential. anytime you can sit back and in relative safety and do something with someone off, you don't necessarily feel that if your son or daughter was going into the target area and you were going t
libya to syria. paul's theory can be traced back to glenn beck. michele bachmann accused hillary clinton's chief of staff of having ties to the muslim brotherhood. her source? an uncorroborated report from a right wing talker frank gaffney. congressman darrell issa got in the act. he orchestrated an entire circus over the fast and furious gun running operation, all based on the rambling of one paranoid blogger, congressman dana rohrabacher alleged the government was able to monitor the benghazi attack in realtime based on a made-up hunch from right wing blogger jennifer rubin. so time and time again, we are seeing elected officials peddle rumors and hearsay to further their agenda. they're blocking nominations. they're ruining people's reputations, they're holding hearings, and they are smearing people any possible way they can. no $10,000 price can repair the damage the republican party has inflicted upon itself. let's bring in john nichols, washington correspondent of the nation magazine. john, good to have you with us tonight. there are no boundaries when it comes to making stuff up w
an instrument. it's not a policy in the clinton administration, their favored response to a problem was to launch some tomahawk cruise missiles, effective weapons and they don't resolve the problem and our unwillingness to confront the reality that al-qaeda is a threat and it's a threat worldwide and it's a growing threat cripples our ability to deal with it effectively. if we don't acknowledge the reality, it's no surprise that you can't respond to it. >> well, i have no idea where this is going, i just know that it's very different and we need a national dialog on this. >> absolutely right. >> and ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> right now, the pakistani doctor who helped the cia track down osama bin laden remains in prison in pakistan and tonight, a call for hollywood to help. >> california activists asking oscar nominees from zero dark thirty and other films to put the spotlight on the doctor's plight. dominic di-natale has more from los angeles. nice to talk to you. >> reporter: great to talk to you, how are you doing. >> greta: very well. dominic, tell the viewers
house, make no mistake. when i worked for bill clinton, we did the same thing. we wanted to bypass the national media. bill: this is local television. you did not have google hankouts, facebook online town hall meetings. seems like that is their strategy lately, to go around the press corps in washington and another example here in san francisco. but, doug, there are stories being written about the dangers of overconfidence. when you win a second term and you begin that second term. do you see that? >> well, i've seen the stories. his great asset, bluntly and i think monica might even agree with my, are the republicans. the "usa today poll" numbers, pew has them at record low of 22% favorable. in the absence of real opposition the account is able to get away with this. he knows the media is the real opposition. so he is hiding out as much as he can, bypassing them, going directly to the american people, using social media, the web and local t. have. bill: monica? >> that is one of the great ironies doug says, he thinks the media is the enemy in some way. this media has been such a
